PM places four-point proposal to combat climate change

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday (October 07) placed a four-point proposal including at a virtual “Climate Vulnerable Leaders’ Event”.

She made the proposal at the event titled “Midnight Survival Deadline for the Climate” while presiding over it as the current Chair of Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF).

The proposals are:

1.    Strict implementation of the Paris Agreement is the only way to slow down the current rate of damage caused by climate change.
2.    The governments should not only honour their national contributions under the Paris Agreement, they also need to substantially increase their ambitions. The idea of climate justice must be established for the sake of climate and the planet.
3.    More vigorous provision of finance must be ensured by the major economies, Multilateral Development Bank (MDBs), and International Financial Institutions (IFIs) along with access to technology.
4.    Take bold actions to address and mainstream the issue of loss and damage.
